I tested the patch with samba-master. If I join a new Samba DC (also 
samba-master + patch), the A and objectGUID records are now 
automatically created. Good work.

However, should this also work when a user joins a Windows DC? I joined 
2008 R2 (incl. all available updates), but neither the A nor the 
objectGUID record was created.

dcpromo checks if dynamic DNS updates are working, before joining the 
domain. If not, then it displays a warning: 
In this newly provisioned AD, dynamic DNS updates are working correctly 
and the warning wasn't displayed. However, the records weren't created.

Additionally, I searched both AD DNS zones on the Samba DC and no DNS 
records were created for the Windows DC. Not even the SRV records. Is 
this related?
